Impackt: Haunted Castle

Foolish Mortals!

Tyrant Plate Armor (T12 Heavy Armor)
Crown of Tyranny (T6 Helmet)
Tyrant Plushie/Darkest Tower (Decorations)
Mighty Pot/Great Spatula (Avatar Items)

Blueprints

Crown of Tyranny
(T6 Helmet)
140 DEF/9 HP
Affinity: Dark
125 Iron/30 Steel/3 Moon Crystal/2 Rustwyrm Scale

A straight upgrade from the previous best in helmet slot (kodiak.) We just need one more tier 6 helmet to deck out a five-headed hydra in different options.

Tyrant Plate Armor (T12 Heavy Armor)
400 DEF/25 HP
Affinity: Dark
Airship Power: 605
404 Iron/123 Steel/46 Jewel/1 Sigil of True Might/3 Raw Obsidian

From a crafting perspective

Running on the expensive side in terms of rare resource costs the Tyrant Plate Armor is sadly a rather underwhelming crafting option. Although it brings an unusual milestone setup (there are no milestones to reduce the component amount, they’re all instead focused on lowering the quantity of all 3 resources used) it’s still going to be held back by its high jewel cost.

Its saving grace however comes in the form of its Airship Power – Tyrant Plate Armor has the highest point value for the armour spot and has an affinity which (if you like to enchant your Dragon Invasion gear) is very helpful.

From a meta perspective

With its high defence and health stats the Tyrant Plate Armour easily takes the spot as the best-in-slot Heavy Armor for your tanking classes. This is a big jump up in survival compared to running Fire Nation Armor and should be used on your fighter-types except Samurai. It also has some potential use on a spellblade/spellknight as they can take advantage of the affinity.

Superior Pack

Tyrant Fists (T12 Gauntlets)
Tyrant Cloak (T9 Cloak)
Tyrant Print/Tyrant Tile (Flooring/Wallpaper)

Blueprints

Tyrant Cloak (T9 Cloak)
280 DEF/5% EVA
Affinity: Dark
285 Leather/79 Fabric/14 Ether/3 Ghastly Pennant/3 Spooky Ectoplasm

Another low-tier cloak but this time around we have 5% evasion on it. That evasion means it has some potential use but it’s going to be on a specific “you have X so use this otherwise don’t” basis.

Tyrant Fists (T12 Gauntlets)
365 DEF/23 HP
Affinity: Dark
Airship Power: 553
421 Iron/134 Steel/50 Jewel/1 Sigil of True Might/ 3 Raw Obsidian

From a crafting perspective

Nope that 50 Jewel cost isn’t a typo on our side, the Tyrant Fists just cost a hell of a lot of resources. You can drop it to 40 with the first ascension but yeah that’s still a lot of jewels involved. Not a bad craft for DI but there are better options which are less painful to make.

From a meta perspective

With its high defence and health stats the Tyrant Plate Armour Fists easily takes the spot as the best-in-slot Heavy Armor Gauntlet for your tanking classes. This is a big jump up in survival compared to running Huscarl Gauntlets and should be used on your fighter-types except Samurai. It also has some potential use on a spellblade/spellknight as they can take advantage of the affinity.

Summary

  • We could sum this pack up as “great items, tragic crafting costs.”
  • Tyrant Fists and Tyrant Plate Armour are the new best-in-slot for Fighter-types (which are not samurai.)
  • We have another low-tier pack cloak with the Tyrant Cloak
  • Visually I’d say this pack looks awesome.

Final Score

Mega Pack: 9/10
Superior Pack: 9/10

Thanks for the impact. I’d be interested to know: can I transmog one of my characters to look like a Tyrant King? I thought a Ranger might work. Does anyone have pictures?

If you go for the tyrant look you’ll be kinda disappointed sadly. There is plenty of spacing between the pieces and the fact that ranger have no boots at all stands out.

But it kinda works if you change the color of the clothes and skin of your character to match the armor. Sorry but I can’t post any picture here. It will kinda looks like a chibi Tyrant (big head/small body).

You’re right.

I bought the pieces via requests to try it out on various fighters. I used General Greaves for the boots.

There doesn’t seem to be a class that can use all pieces from the pack at once. I tried Rangers (no boots), Lords (no cape) and Berserkers (no helm). Apparently a promoted berserker (= Jarl) would be able to use the crown or the fists but not both at once.
